This book provides men with an overview of what has gone wrong in the political landscape that has put men at such disadvantage in education, disadvantage in family law which has led to conflict and destroyed lives, and many stifled opportunities to lift themselves to higher achievement, due to the PC culture permeating so many of our institutions. This book will alert men to where the challenges to a better existence lie and help them to formulate a way forward.
I read this for my personal information. I want to read it again to create my own catalogue of the research findings and statistics, mainly because when I discuss masculinty issues I find that both sides, me included, are dealing in unsubstantiated generalizations. The thing I liked most is the way the articles are backed up by solid research results. No abuse, no name calling. Just empirically verifiable statements. What I would like to see now is a template for moving forward before the polarization of our society becomes irreversible.
Bettina Arndt writes a very timely book about how feminism has gone too far and just indulges in demonising men. She writes a lot about the current culture of man-bashing, and how this brings out the worst behaviour in women - everything from self-entitled and narcissistic behaviour, to the excesses of the #MeToo era. A must read for anyone who wants to know about the silent suffering of men in an over-feminised, gynocentric society.
I have never been so glued to a book the way I have with this one. I finished it in a week (record time for me to read a book). A detailed account of the myriad of problems facing men in this anti-male, misandrist society we are currently living in. Bettina Arndt is heaven sent. So great and extremely valuable to have a woman in our corner batting for us. Thank you Bettina for all the work that you do!
A bit repetitive and some case studies didn’t add much to Bettina’s narrative. Despite the shortcomings of the book it still provided a good case for men and the need to rein in the excesses of the feminism.
